EXPLORING DELAWARE'S BURIED PAST:

Lewes Colonial Shipwreck Excavation

On a small stretch of Lewes beach, a search for artifacts is on.  The pottery shards, glassware, and other every day items were part of a colonial ship's cargo, shipwrecked 250 years ago.

Join researchers and excavators, as they dive for real historic treasure, that has rested undisturbed for centuries, just 14 feet down and less than half a mile off the shore.
